Depending on the findings of the panel the Obama Administration may be forced to follow the US Constitution or other extreme measures may be taken including impeachment proceedings.

Rep Jim Gerlach (R-PA) offered this testimony today:

I think we can agree that Congress has fairly limited means of redress in the event that the executive branch circumvents the legislative branch through its decisions not to enforce certain federal law. Congress can try to pass new laws to either remedy or defund a violating action Ė but a president who undertook the action will not likely support the measure. Where the action rises to a ďhigh crime or misdemeanor,Ē the House may initiate an impeachment proceeding. But, such an avenue would surely be extremely divisive within the Congress and the nation generally, and would divert the attention of Congress from other important issues of the day.

Finally, judicial relief could be sought, but we well know that that process can take years and years while the underlying transgression continues.

The money phrase. And this is what Obama and his corrupt comrades are counting on!

Why character DOES matter: I think we can agree that Congress has fairly limited means of redress in the event that the executive branch circumvents the legislative branch through its decisions not to enforce certain federal law

The 'Pubbies talk a lot, about a lot of things. The problem is, they do NOTHING about any of them [except, mayhaps, the Tea Party]
